California Governor Jerry Brown has appointed Democratic Congressman Xavier Becerra as the state’s attorney general. Becerra is the highest ranking Latino in Congress. If approved by the state legislature, he will finish the two years left on Kamala Harris’ term. The position is likely to become nationally prominent as state lawmakers pledge to fight the incoming Trump administration on several fronts.
